Following last weeks review of Zavoloka and Kotra, here comes another release, this time involving the third champion of Ukranian experimental music, Andrey Kiritchenko, as part of Nexsound's live reports series. Recorded on the 16th of April 2005, they have a set of swirling sine waves and percussive like sounds. Subtle at the beginning, but somewhere half way through it gets a bit distorted and reduced feedback like. However the piece, just over twenty-eight minutes, stays under control. Highly atmospheric, it is still remotely away from the current warm ambient glitch music produced by Kiritchenko or the usually louder music of Kotra. More microsound than click and cuts music. Careful silent music in a long beautiful curve. Very nicely produced.

textbook example of intelligent noise music
A meeting of two masters of sound with a zen like quality. A sonic tea ceremony: noble, measured gestures produce refined focused results. But I wish a few wrenches fell into the performance to knock it off balance. Noise can be smart, but it should never be afraid to surprise the listener.
